Hormones are responsible for the stimulation or regulation of several processes
in the human body. But hormone levels are a delicate balance and a decline
that naturally occurs as we age.
Out of all the hormones, the decreases that affect us most are thyroid
hormones; testosterone in men and estrogen for women.
The most effective solution to this problem is Hormone Replacement Therapy.
Here are the biggest benefits of Hormone Replacement.
Maintaining Bone Density
A decline in hormones can lead to brittle bones, or osteoporosis. The
lack of estrogen in post-menopausal women and of testosterone in men can
also lead to bone loss.
Night Sweats and Hot Flashes (in Women)
Hormone Replacement Therapy or HRT is the best treatment for the one of
the most frustrating symptoms of menopause – the night sweats, hot
flashes and mood swings.
Erectile Dysfunction (in Men)
Testosterone optimization in men can help improve erectile dysfunction,
and other sexual problems such as premature ejaculation.
With age and a hormonal decline make men and women more susceptible to
depression, anxiety, and mood swings. Hormone replacement therapy can
return them to improved emotional well-being.
HRT, especially testosterone can have an anti-inflammatory effect. It
can improve joint health and back pain.
